Welcome to Monty Studio

Banyule's Photo Studio

A modern, welcoming and versatile home photo studio equipped with multiple non-flashing LED panels, multiple physical and digital backdrops and a homely environment which makes the smallest baby to the oldest relative feel relaxed right away.

Situated in one of Banyule's oldest residential dwellings, Monty Studio is the creation of owner Marty who designed and created the multi-functional space which can fit large families, crying babies, domestic products, barking dogs and much more into the elegant space.

With the 14 independent LED light panels, Marty can affect the mood, style and charisma of each photo session, displaying all images in real-time which gives the customer input and reassurance of the beautiful images that have been taken.

Martin has great skill in making something look better as a picture than what it does in real life!

Fast and professional service.

Went there after work and had photos sent to me that evening.

Highly recommend Marty and Monty Studio





Marty is fantastic!

He clearly loves his job and made the whole experience very comfortable for our little guy.

Marty has created a wonderful studio space which facilitated getting photos taken on a cold and very wet Melbourne day!

We highly recommend Monty Studio also as Marty was very professional and efficient in getting all the wonderful still shots to us promptly.

Thank you Marty.

It’s a modern and welcoming photo studio which is separated from the residential house when in use.
The studio is part of the extended lounge so those not getting photographed can sit, relax and enjoy the photo session.  

These are specifically acquired to add magic and creativity to the photo sessions and are a great way for kids to act like their Super Hero’s by acting in different poses to recreate dramatic images. 

Marty will be in touch prior to the photo session to run some ideas of what is best to bring with you.
Changing facilities are available.
Oh and plenty of smiles…

You can either pay cash or transfer directly from bank to bank. Most bank transfers are now immediate. Tax invoices available on request.

If you have an idea of what or how you want the photos to turn out then great.
The easiest way to convey this is to find an image that you like online and send it through to Marty for discussions on options available. 

Yes every photo is edited for colour, cropping, skin tones and any blemishes removed.
More manipulative Photoshopping can be available depending on the photo session type.  

Monty Studio only uses images for promotional purposes with consent from the photo attendees.
If you are happy for Monty Studio to use the images taken then please sign a consent form after the photo session.

Yes absolutely. Through the use of modern technology, the images taken can be transposed onto a large 4K television for immediate viewing. 

Sure. Monty Studio is Pet Friendly although all we ask is that all pets are domesticated and toilet trained where possible.

Yes if you prefer more natural or candid photos taken at your local residence or a natural environment then discus these options with Marty.
